Vikings and the Giants has been postponed because the roof of the stadium in Minneapolis has collapsed under the weight of the snow. This is a great day to stay inside and enjoy some warm soup -- of course, that soup is so much better if one of the main ingredients is wine.

1½ T. olive oil

1 minced onion

4 large onions

1 T. flour
